*** Of the three Titans, Emrakul is the most eldritch. Ulamog and Kozilek have vaguely humanoid features (limbs, torsos, heads, etc.). Emrakul looks like a jellyfish from hell, as can be seen on the main page.

*** Eldritch Moon set illustrates nicely what Emrakul does with living creatures: they mutate, often merge and become extensions of her will, growing much stronger in the process. Two other titans merely eat everything and transform landscape into wasteland.

*** Long ago, the god Dou-Bral shared the portfolio of his half-sister Shelyn, that is to say, beauty, art, love, and joy. Then they had some sort of conflict, and Dou-Bral left reality to explore the dark places beyond and in-between the planes... When he came back, ''something'' [[EldritchAbomination from out there]] [[DemonicPossession was along for the ride]], and he became the god of pain, darkness and loss. Oh, and he now looks like

** One of the various backstories of [[{{Satan}} Asmodeus]], the Lord of Nessus and King of Hell, is that he is actually one of these. What others see when dealing with him [[FightingAShadow is actually an advanced illusion]]. Asmodeus' real body is that of a titanic, ''hundreds of miles long'' serpentine creature named Ahriman who is still injured from his crash landing in Hell. He was some sort of [[TimeAbyss primordial entity who predated the Gods]] and either was thrown into Baator by the gods or crashed there after his struggle with his twin sister Jazirian (who seems to have become the god of the Couatls -AlwaysLawfulGood winged serpents- since then). In the latter case he somehow fell so hard he hit the bottom of the seventh layer (Baator initially had seven layers), fell ''through'' and created the eight layer, only to fall through ''that'' as well and landing on the ninth layer, where he came to a stop at the bottom of an impossibly deep canyon created by his fall.

** Before Asmodeus even landed in the Nine Hells, they were inhabited by the Ancient Baatorians. Hardly anything is known about them, since they appear to be resistant to both scrying and divine magic, and because Asmodeus has done his best to remove record of their existence from existence. They still occasionally manifest as indestructible, shapeless forms that breathe in light and breathe out darkness. Some of them even ''breathe life'' rather than light. Some say the Ancient Baatorians aren't even alive in the same way that both devils and mortals are - they're more some kind of formless primordial entity that can only partially manifest under certain conditions and in certain places. More strangely, the realm of Baator itself seems to be involved in their generation - nupperibo [[note]]the weakest type of devil[[/note] will evolve into an Ancient Baatorian over a very long period of time, which is why more powerful devils destroy nupperibo when they can.

** The sourcebook ''Second Sight'' has a pretty good chapter on building your own abomination, a MisanthropeSupreme or FallenHero to serve as their high priest, and a cult to worship them. The creation example is a being of dissonant sound. (Although one suggested weakness for this being -- music of unity -- seemed uncannily reminiscent of ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}} 2''.)
